is water loss. melosi: because it's not a catastrophic issue, we don't think much about it. but there is a 10%, 20%, 30% water loss or leakage in some systems. allbee: already treated water that you've invested money in, you're losing before you actually delivered it. narrator: so many utilities are employing the business strategy of asset management. it's a paradigm shift in the approach of attaining a sustainable water infrastructure. man: it's not construction of new pipelines. we are talking about maintaining, sustaining the infrastructure we have. you've got to know what you have, where it is, what condition it's in, and how long you can expect it to last. melosi: we have very little choice because we've invested in a system that cannot be readily changed. we don't leave a lot of flexibility to dig that all up and replace it with something else. sinha: so we have to also teach our students, the workforce, that there is a new science -- repair, renewal, and rehabilitation. that's different from building something new. you cannot fix each and every crack in the city. it'
up at the house of these journalists and i don't know what would they do? what would they do? >> i don't know what they would do? i guess they'd maybe protest. i really don't know what they're going to do. i've had some phone calls that some people want to organize that. i've got really mixed feelings about that right now. >> but in your gut how do you feel? should we just complain about it as you are quite publicly and not show up at the journalists' house to just aggravate the situation even more? >> well that's what it is, then we're just as bad as they are. this is their personal agenda to make this happen, to put our families in harm's way, to go back and give it to them at the same way it's not they're in danger, it's to show how upset we are of what they've done. maybe that's what needs to be done. i'd rather not but i'm not going to stop other gun owners and their frustration in letting the editors know the lack of restraint they had with this particular view of theirs. >> scott surmervil summerville, so much for being with us this this morning. >> thank you. >>> in just an
don't know -- i would like to know, first of all how many schools there are in america. high schools, middle schools, preschools, private christian academies? the point is this is unfeasible. i'm not sure it's the right way to go to put an armed guard in every single school in america. who will pick up the taxpayer dla are on that? the counties, it is states? the locals the feds? who will do this? it's impractical. to the some mention i don't like guns in our schools. it's a nice political sound bite and they can use an old statement from bill clinton to say this, but i'm not sure it's a practical idea, frankly. >> first of all, when it comes to education, decisions really do need to be handled on a local level. that's how education decisions should be made. but at the same time i do support the idea of consideration putting an armed patrol officer. my sister in atlanta works at a receiving desk, and she's not prepared or trained for dealing with someone coming into the school. i would hate to think of my sister or another teacher have been to stop someone from breaking into their sc
. >> at minimum, make sure people's taxes don't go up and 2 million people don't lose their unemployment. i was modestly hopeful yesterday. now, the pressure is on congress to produce. >> the president responded to what would happen if no agreement is reached and the nation does fall over that cliff. >> if you look at projections of 2013, people generally felt that the economy would continue to grow, unemployment would tick down, housing would continue to improve, but what's been holding us back is the dysfunction here in washington. if people start seeing that on january 1st, this problem still hasn't been solved, that we haven't seen the deficit reduction that we could have had, the republicans willing to take a deal that i give them. if they say that people's taxes have gone up, which means consumer spending is depressed, then it's going to have an adverse reaction in the markets. >> there was much more to what the president had to say. listen to what he had to say on deficits and spending. >> you are not only going to cut your way to prosperity. one of the fallacies, i think, that has b
look back. al getting loose. man! you don't realize how much dancing there was until you see it all at once. let take a look at it in a few minutes. first let's go inside and get a check of today's top stories with andrea can ining at the ne desk. >> i love all the dancing. happy new year. hillary clinton will be spending the new year in a hospital. doctors discovered a blood clot after suffering from a concussion earlier this month. just released gallup poll, most admired woman. president obama is the most admired man. >>> congress will spend part of the new year in session, trying to come up with a deal that will prevent the nation from going over the fiscal cliff. >>> the american academy of pediatrics has released a new statement encouraging elementary schools to let kids have their play time. recess gives children the opportunity to develop skills that can't be taught in the classroom, that it should not serve as a substitute for phys. ed. class. fond farewell 75 watt incandescent light bulb. under law, they can no longer be produced or imported as of january 1st though retaile
needs to hear what she says so he can make comments about i agree with her, i don't agree with her. it makes sense to have her go first. >> clinton's spokesman has not said where the blood clot is located. doctors not involved in her case say if in her legs it's easily treatable. if in the lungs or brain, it would be potentially more dan r dangerous. and doctors want to make sure there are no underlying conditions that led to the clot. she has not announced her future plans but is widely considered the democratic front-runner if she chooses to make another run for the white house in 2016. willie? >> andrea mitchell, thank you. dr. roshini raj is a contributing medical editor. we know weeks ago she fantd as a result of dehydration and the flu. how do we get from there to a blood clot? >> it's a little murky. she did have a concussion after the fall. but to go from a concussion to a blood clot is not the common consequence. however if she was in bed, immobilized, people who have surgery or on long plane rides, because they're not moving so much, can develop a blood clot. if perhaps
're saying they may not be possible if if the freshman and now sophomores and many members who come and don't eventually give a nether blessing to cut a deal. in her may feel in the same tough spot now that but he was last year. a ground part and based on what you say may not be possible if obama wins under any circumstances. >> this is outside of the book but i will do it anyway because i've been doing general election for the times. talking to jim messina the campaign manager of the obama campaign and david axelrod and rahm emanuel and stephanie cutter and asking them you know, how would the next years under obama, given that the house composition -- >> is almost certainly going to be similar. >> how will things be different and uniformly their answer, in other words the talking point, was that the fever will break, that the american people if they vote for president obama for another four years will basically be voting against obstructionist and the republicans will get the message and they will walk in a sultry fashion toward the center of. >> i can see that happening at all. >> no, no
. i don't see myself like that. >> barbra streisand, the way she is, a funny girl. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> people ask me who i would most like to have on my show as a guest one name pops up in my mind. she's a fabulous actress with a truly iconic voice, a voice that i believe is the greatest there's ever been. she's a humanitarian, a political activist, a wife, a mother, she's a funny girl. she is, of course, barbra streisan i even got the name right. >> did you say bah-bra? >> i said barbra. >> i got the last name right. we had dinner today, and you kept lecturing me. streisand. >> [ english accent ] by god, you've got it. >> i have come from watching your brilliant new movie "guilt trip." the reason why i loved it, it reminded me exactly what it would be like if i went on a road trip with my mother. it's you and seth rogen. you go on this bizarre, crazy road trip together. you're the archetypal jewish momma, and he's the archetypal only son, and chaos ensues. let's watch a clip. >> hey, i'm over here. >> hey, mom. i see you. all of new york sees you. hey, there. hi,
, they all had affairs. what do you say to that? >> well, i don't think the idea -- the problem is that general petraeus had an affair. i think the idea and the big problem is that he was director of the cia and he walked into right into one of the most blackmailable situations you can have. it's good the u.s. found out about it before the russians or chinese. it's not that he's a general messing around, and according to the code of the justice that's not allowed. >> teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff with just 36 days to go until tax increases kick, in the white house and congress are playing a high stakes game of let's make a deal. >> only in america believes there has to be this what i believe to be really farcical now surely -- the nature of the world is very fast moving, america has huge economic problems, heading for another fiscal cliff, everyone laughing at you from afar, the american public sick and tired of all the games going on and there are you, grover norquist, a very bright guy still resolutely saying a pledge is a pledge is a pledge, it cannot be broken wh
we don't have closure . we thought it was looking early morning as senator lindsay graham was up . he said the president won. here is senator graham. >> people don't want to go over the cliff. i think what have we accomplished. a political victory to the president. hats off to the president. he will get tax rate increases on upper income americans. we have accomplished very little about becoming greece or getting out of debt. it is a political victory of the president. i hope we have courage when it comes to the debt ceiling. to fight as what we want as republicans. >> there was a lot of celebration but not anything to do with a deal being made. when house peeker john bone bone came in. republicans gave him a standing ovation . but there is no decision made. >> to chris wallace's name those who talk don't know . those who know don't talk. >> dave: some talk. republicans have made a significant compromise from what i can tell you. republicans have offered $400,000 thres hold for individuals and $550,000 for couples. that is a significant compromise for the republican ideology that did
there are crews on the scene already cleaning up and they have a lot of cleanup to do. right now they don't know how much this is going to cost them to fix up. initial reports right now all but one of the portable classrooms completely destroyed, many of these sticks and splinters you see behind me are what they are now. also the roof of the band hall literally picked up and moved. you can see the sky now and as far as the athletic facility several windows have blown out. the school was built back in the 1920s and one of the largest in alabama with 2,000 students. they're in a rush to get everything back open january 3rd. as far as the rest of mobile they saw damage in other areas as far as houses, a church was damaged as well as the infirmary. there are no reports of injuries or anyone killed. reporting live, christina leavenworth, back to you. >> thanks so much. it's the east coast's turn as the heavy snow seen here in seymour, indiana, is expected to make its way to the ohio valley and further east. these are taped pictures but not taken too long ago. you see the reporter there. blizzard warn
york. we don't have to get on an airplane. >> sold out at the blue note. two shows a night. 21 nights in a row. come down. shows are 8:00 and 10:30. there are usually a couple seats left because people can't make it to new york at the last minute but call the club or whatever. very, very famous legendary jazz club the blue note. >> usually room at the bar. >> there's always room at the bar. >> we'll see you in an hour for the closing bell. thanks so much. >> thanks, bob. speaking of the market shortened session one more hour. let's head over to maria at post 9. >> thanks, carl. hi everybody. welcome to the closing bell. i'm maria bartiroma at the new york stock exchange. no, your watch is not wrong. the closing bell ringing three hours early today at 1:00 eastern for christmas eve. hi, bill. >> hey, maria. i'm bill griffith here at cnbc world headquarters. a down day not terrible, light volume as you might imagine on this half day. the dow down about 40 points right now. 46-point decline at 13,144. all the other major averages lower as well. the nasdaq at this hour down about ten poin
's indistinguishable and date in no way to provide cover for all those moderate who want to do the right being. i don't think said people exist in the republican party. listen, the answer is grover norquist no new tax pledge. that alone would free the republican party to engage in good faith, sensitive negotiations. everybody knows that our taxes are now at an historic low in the contemporary era and they're going to go out sort of naturally. and with the aging of the population, i guarantee you will be somewhere around 22% gdp. wouldn't it be nice if we could acknowledge that and say what's the most bowl, efficient way to structure a tax system, probably progressive consumption tax direct it in ways to accomplish a whole host of object is. as long as you have that pledge to which members signed, it's hopeless. the republican party cannot be a player in any constructive resolution of the problems confronting the country. there is no political space for a third-party to occupy. it's based on a presumption. we have two extreme parties and there's this great center to mobilize and i'm deeply skeptical t
but it's absolutely going to be a huge fight going forward. >> it it makes it to the floor? >> i don't think it will make it. i think the house republicans, there are not 218 votes as congress stands right now and if president obama wants to engage congress on this, it will be an uphill battle for him. >> let's listen to chuck schumer responding to wayne lapierre's comments on the press. >> i think he's so extreme and so tone deaf that he actually helps the cause of us passing sensible gun legislation in the congress. >> friday's comments, yesterday's interview, what's your thought here? was he handling the sensitivity properly here? >> when the nra entered the fray on friday, they introduced a different topic into the conversation we'd been talking a lot about gun control, mental health issues and here we have a new topic of arming more people in schools. so i think this might be a more divisive part of the conversation and kind of might rile up some democrats to be opposing them. >> jake, you know, lapierre was very clear in his messaging over the weekend as well as on friday and k
term. >> there you go. for the long term, not the short term. >> there you go. i'm don lemon. happy new year to you. jooirksz . >>> hello, i'm don lemon and this is cnn's top 10 of 2012. we look at the stories that captured our attention, what we see as the biggest stories of the year around the world, in crime, money, weather and even the biggestscandals and later this hour, those stories chosen by you. anchor of state of the union, candy crowley, with the top ten political stories of 2012. >>> like finding your favorite grain of sand on the beach. impossible number of possibilities. catch phrases become boomerangs. >> if you got a business you didn't build that. >> i like being aable to find service members. >> i'm an american woman who uses contraception. let's start there. >> it's like an etch-a-sketch. you shake it up and we start all over again. >> i'm not going to shut up. it's my turn. >> i think it's called romneysia. >> if i were to coin a term it would be obamaloney. >> there were game changers, too, moments that shook up the race or made history and made our top ten list. wi
, and that could be a dangerous situation. again, we don't know where the clot is. it could also be in some of the veins around the head. we're still awaiting those details, suzanne. >> sanjay, from what we do know, do we suspect this is something that's very serious? >> given the fact that the initial concussion she was actually told she could stay at home. she went in for an exam yesterday. my guess is, given that it was on a sunday, it wasn't a routine exam. she may have had some particular thing she wanted to get checked out. now the doctors are saying that it will be 48 hours in the hospital, that fits, suzanne, with the amount of time it typically takes to put someone on blood thinners. so if that's the case, i think that all these things could potentially be serious, but from what we're hearing, they caught this in time. >> as secretary of state, she's visited more than 100 countries. it was back in 1998 as first lady, that i had a chance to travel with her. she had described it afterwards it was one of the most serious health scares she ever had because of a blood clot behind her kn

happened, don't constituents want to know what their legislators think? why not just embrace what you think even if you say, well, i don't think gun control laws should be put into place in america. >> if i told you it was tough politics, would you be shocked? that that's the reason why. but in all fairness, i think that the political realities and the fact it is politically tough, despite what happened in newtown for a lot of politicians to do anything to anger the gun rights enthusiasts. and we're talking about, as you reported, a 4 million member organization, it's tough for them to do that. i think also, everybody is just trying to kind of work through what could be possible legislatively, and for those who are in politically perilous situations, there's no benefit in them jumping on a piece of legislation before they really take the time and see what they may or may not have to vote on. >> dana bash reporting live from washington. >>> if you were watching the nra's announcement on friday, you could not help but see this. >> the nra has blood on its hands. shame on the nra. ban assault

, i don't recall how i made it back across that bridge to the church. but after i got back to the church, the church was full to capacity, more than 2,000 people on the outside trying to get in to protest what had happened on the bridge. and someone asked me to say something to the audience. and i stood up and said something like: "i don't understand it, how president johnson can send troops to vietnam but cannot send troops to selma, alabama, to protect people whose only desire is to register to vote." the next thing i knew, i had been admitted to the local hospital in selma. amy goodman: explain that moment where you decided to move forward, because i don't think the history we learn records those small acts that are actually gargantuan acts of bravery. talk about-i mean, you saw the weapons the police arrayed against you. what propelled you forward, congressmember lewis? rep. john lewis: well, my mother, my father, my grandparents, my uncles and aunts, and people all around me had never registered to vote. i had been working all across the south. the state of mississippi
creators, all those small businesses. i don't know why you would want to invest in this country now. gerri: let me ask you this. the congressional budget office has out its numbers. if the fiscal cliff hits they say u.s. gdp would shrink by half a percentage point and that unemployment will rise to over 9%. do you think they have the rights or are they just too conservative? will it be worse? >> if we actually went over the cliff we would be subtracted from domestic demand over $600 billion. that is about four percentage points in gdp. most economists were forecasting in the first half of next year hardly 2 percent growth. if you subtract 4% to spending from that year and a recession that is much deeper. the cbo tense and not be alarmist because they say what they are partisan, but congress read it paycheck, and they don't want to say congress is being irresponsible and thrusting the economy into the next great depression. gerri: then know whether paycheck comes from. did you know that congress, the vice-president, the president are of getting pay increases that the president approved . >>
. >> reporter: the president's basic package has much more for democrats to like. so don't expect that to get very far, but all sides now agree the senate must first pass a bill before the house makes any kind of move. so all eyes will be on mitch mcconnell and harry reid and their negotiatorsoled up on capitol hill. the senate comes back into session at 1:00 on sunday. christi, alison? >>> and the cliffhanger continues. jessica yellin, thanks. >>> and january 1st is the deadline to make a deal on the fiscal cliff. for some states, it's a day that a series of new laws are going to take effect. let me get you clued in here. in california, talking more than 800 new laws, including one requiring apartments and condos to install carbon monoxide detectors. separately, employers will no longer be able to ask job applicants for log ins to social media accounts, such as facebook and twitter. and the increase between 28 cents and 37 cents per hour affects more than 1 million low-income earners. thanks to laws that have lower minimum wage to keep price. and the price of stamps is set to go up? e, again

the past few weeks is they don't have a plan of their own that could get bipartisan support. the so-called senate bill that the majority leader keeps referring to passed with only democratic votes and despite his repeated calls for the house to call it, he knows he himself is the reason it can't happen. the paperwork never left the senate. so there's nothing for the house to vote on. as i pointed out before we took that vote back on july 25th, the democratic bill is, quote, a revenue measure that didn't originate in the house so it's got no chance whatsoever of becoming law, end quote. that's what i said back on july 25th. the only reason we ever allowed that vote on that proposal is i said at that time was that we knew it didn't pass constitutional muster. and the democrats were really serious, they would proceed to a revenue bill that originated in the house as the constitution requires and as i called on them to do again last week. to repeat, the so-called nate bill is nothing more than a glorified sense of the senate resolution. so let's put that convenient talking point aside f

from going over the so-called fiscal cliff. they say if president obama and congress don't make a deal we will almost certainly see a recession. do you buy that, steven? >> the congressional budget office is a nonpartisan group that does this and says we will in fact have an immediate rescission. they say that we come out of a short, sharp recession stronger than we would be if we didn't go into that recession in the first place. we stop borrowing money from the future to prop us up now. we have the immediate problems but in the long term we are in gets shape. that's what they are grappling this. how do they best structure this to do the least amount of damage now but get us to the good economy in the future. >> reporter: if you look up a research paper from the president's own economist you'll find in the long run we are healthier, short run, yeah, it's painful. is that what motivates some of the republicans that, you know, what are called chuckle heads, but maybe in the end they are wisdom heads. >> that is certainly part of the motivation there. the other part of the motivation, and
taxes that they could have a primary opponent, especially when they know that if they don't do anything, if we go over the fiscal cliff there will be a bill put in place where they could vote to cut taxes instead of having what so might consider to raise them beforehand. one of those 4 senators is mitch mcconnell the g.o.p. leader. >> reporter: the president before leaving for hawaii says he hopes everyone gets a chance to drink some el nog, sing some christmas carols and get with their constituents to aeu to tell them they can get something done. all this will only cut $8 billion as opposed to the $4 trillion. can't america do better th-pb. >> the discussions have been focused entirely on taxes. even if you adopted all the president's tax cuts -- tax increases that he wanted it would do so little to touch our long-term fiscal problem. it really needs to be entitlement reform and it's really a tragedy that everything has been focused on taxes when entitlement reform is really what needs to be addressed to address a long term fiscal crisis. >> reporter: that and taxes seem to be the sti

$250,000 or less. >> not because democrats in congress don't want to go ahead and cooperate but because i think it's been very hard for speaker bainer and republican leader mcconnell to accept the fact taxes on the wealthiest americans should go up a little bit, as part of an overall deficit reduction package. if folks can't say yes to good offers, then i also have an obgigs to the american people to make sure that the entire burden of deficit reduction doesn't fall on seniors, who are relying on medicare. >> reporter: the president focusing his comments on the tax side of this so-called fiscal cliff. but as mike so aptly pointed out, there is the sequester, the massive spending cuts that would largely target the defense department. those are coming due as well at the beginning of the year. senator lindsay graham was on fox news sunday and told chris wallace, he got a call from the defense secretary, leon panetta, who said, even if there is a deal on the hitt hill to deal with the tax side of all of this, secretary panetta does not think there will be a deal to stop the massive defense

home with your families if you don't have to go to work. those conditions are dangerous not just across the midwest but as we head later tonight and during evening rush and overnight hours, travel across the northeast will look a lot like that, especially interior sections, pennsylvania, upstate new york and even portions of new england. later on tonight we'll quickly see the conditions deteriorating across the northeast. this storm system is very widespread. it is a large storm and areas across the south that aren't really dealing with any precipitation across places in alabama we're still dealing with strong winds from this storm. gusts easily over 40 miles per hour. we have wind advisories across the florida panhandle, alabama, georgia, portions of the carolinas and kentucky and state of tennessee. we're seeing a lot of widespread winds even though the storm system is not producing precipitation in your area. another big concern for the storm we're looking at a risk for more severe weather. we saw 30 reports of tornados yesterday. very unusual to see that during christmas day or even
a tremendous young man. these people get up in the middle of the night to put out fires they don't expect to be shot and killed. >> absolutely not. they don't expect to be shot at when they're coming to help put out flames and save lives. i want to show a picture to our viewers that we just got in of lieutenant mike chiporinni, one of the two officers that was killed. we don't have it for you. we'll get it to you next hour, for sure. the two that were injured are in the hospital in serious condition, both awake, alert, not on a ventilator. we're told they can talk, which is good news, but a long recovery ahead for them. hala, when this happened, so many flames went up and the firefighters had to retreat after they were shot at, so they couldn't put out the fires for hours. so they engulfed four homes, 33 people were evacuated and we still don't know if anyone was harmed in the fires. >> right. that's going to be something that is going to, in a few hours, of course, become clearer and clearer. what about this suspected shooter, do we know anything about him? >> not a lot. we actually don'
of representatives said, and i have it here somewhere, i don't want to be critical of john, meaning john boehner, but if you don't ever bring something to the floor without the votes. so this is what happened last thursday night where he brought this bill to the floor, his plan b, and it went nowhere. was that a major miscalculation for him? >> it was. look, denny was the speakner nea different time. he could hand out projects to districts of wavering members. and he had a very tough leadership team that went out and got the votes. boehner is not a strong leader. he doesn't have the pork and the earmarks anymore since they've been banned. and a lot of the incoming -- or the folks that came in in 2010, the tea party folks, they look at the tom delay are era and say -- >> they're both long time qulil wat capitol hill watchers, and we have to ask you are you seeing any sway now in following boehner? is he losing support? >> obviously the fact that he thought that he would be able to bring the bill last week to the floor to raise taxes on everybody making a million dollars or more and then had to pu

bargain? >> i don't think there will be a grand bargain before the end of the year. there's he hope a deal will be cut before new year's to avert the fiscal cliff by extending tax cuts temporarily or tax cuts from people under $250,000 of income. i spoke this morning to a republican member of congress who said, we still can come back next week, and we can still do it, although, you know, mara was talking in her piece about shoppers who think they get a better deal the longer they wait. it's a worse deal for the republican party having waited this long, having gotten beaten on the plan b that speaker boehner was trying to do. the terms are getting worse for republicans, not better. >> a lot of people watching this will say if congress couldn't reach a grand bargain with a self-imposed deadline, this so-called fiscal cliff, when will they ever get together and do something big? is there hope beyond the 31st and 1st of this year that eventually there will be a big deal? >> well, i've always been perhaps excessively optimistic about this, but i think, yes. look, members of congress understand
